Shanghai girls
This is a tale of two Chinese sisters, Pearl and May.  In 1937, Shanghai, they are having the time of their lives as “beautiful girls” posing for painters.  Their world changes when their father informs them he has sold them into arranged marriages with two American sons to pay his gambling debts.  They help each other as they struggle to become Americans and keep their Chinese heritage.  It is a testament of the love of sisters: who share hopes, dreams, and a life changing secret.
